A post shared by Malala Yousafzai (@malala) on

“I wrote #WeAreDisplaced because we hear so much about refugees and immigration – but we don’t hear enough from refugees themselves, especially girls and young women. These are stories of harrowing journeys, lost loved ones and longing for home. The resilient girls in this book show readers the real lives behind the statistics, news reports and rhetoric we hear every day.

Proceeds from every book sold will benefit the girls in the book and @MalalaFund’s work for girls’ education.  How can you help refugees today? Buy this book and learn about their lives in their own words.”
